Cue Google search.
Come on … I know you’ve typed your name into that little search box before, but have you ever added “one dark secret” to the search? Or worse yet, add the word “pictures” to the search. YIKES.
According to Google, Margo Kelly’s one dark secret is: she was one of the women who appeared in SCARFACE as a “woman at the Babylon Club.” Hmm. That has plotline potential, but I wonder what she looked like. (Because that wasn’t me.) Surely she’s gorgeous. Right?
Here’s the picture that came up with the search:

I kid you not.
And Google brought up links for various book reviews on Goodreads that I’ve actually written (not some other Margo Kelly). How is that a dark secret? Maybe because I gave an honest review?
Here’s one that Google listed: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17245704-escape-from-eden
ESCAPE FROM EDEN was a dark book with lots of secrets, and I highly recommend it, but that doesn’t reveal anything new about me.
So … I’m not an extra from the movie SCARFACE. I do write honest reviews on Goodreads, but can you really handle a dark secret about me?
When I was a teenager, I took a university math placement test for someone else.
*bows head in shame*
But it was fun.
At the time, I worked at a hotel, and a fellow coworker was stressed about taking a placement test at the local university. I didn’t get what the big deal was. It was just a placement test to figure out what math class she should be in, but she didn’t want to have to take the lower math classes. So she offered me money. We both arrived on test taking day. Showed our id’s … but then when I filled out my test form, I wrote her name at the top of the test and she wrote mine at the top of her test. I didn’t care, because I wasn’t planning on attending that university. She got into the math class she wanted, and to this day, I’m curious to know if she passed the class or not, but we lost contact, and I’ve never seen her since.
There. You know my dark secret (one of them anyhow) … so feel free to blackmail me now.
Or … share your dark secret in the comments below! Have you ever taken a test for someone else? Or cheated on a test of any sort?
Happy New Year!
